[BioC] rationale behind getBioC script

What is the rationale behind using the getBioC script ? For example if I
want to install all R packages, I would do the following :
all <- CRAN.packages()[ ,1]
got <- installed.packages()[ ,1]
need <- setdiff(all, got)
install.packages( need )
and then go for a really long coffee break.
Is would be useful to have something similar to CRAN.packages, perhaps
named BioC.packages() .
Is it sensible to have BioC.packages() and install.packages2()
(currently in reposTools) directly in the R base package itself ?
